I have a decision in principle. The lender mentioned the loan came with free conveyancing. Does this mean I have to instruct their panel conveyancer as I would much rather appoint a local conveyancing solicitor in Canonbury?
You should check but the the probability is that appoint one of their panel lawyers if you want the "fee-free" offer. Speak to the mortgage company to check if they make available a cash alternative. In the past a few lenders offered a £250 cashback as a further option in which case that money can go towards your preferred conveyancing solicitor in Canonbury.
How does conveyancing in Canonbury differ for new build properties?
Most buyers of new build residence in Canonbury approach us having been asked by the seller to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the property is built. This is because house builders in Canonbury tend to purchase the site, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct conveyancers as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are accustomed to new build conveyancing in Canonbury or who has acted in the same development.
